Da-Diddly-Da-Da Motif Origins

Continuing the discussion from Martial Law lyrics:
Curiously enough I’ve noticed this motif on a live version of Night of the Thumpasorus Peoples performed during the same year as the release of Parlet’s Pleasure Principle… https://youtu.be/YRTmP-UJcT4?t=950


I like the Da da da’s from Under the Influence of a Groove by Bootsy’s Rubber Band: they take the melody from Sly’s If You Want Me To Stay. Lovely stuff.

Assume that’s Parlet or Brides or some amalgamation thereof.

Yeah. That is the anti-tour from Passaic NJ. Fall of 1978.
